Elcometer offers a comprehensive range of vacuum tables to provide an ideal surface for manual application of films on test charts or samples and is available in two formats: The Elcometer 4800 – this aluminium table with a channel around the edge holds flexible test pieces, e.g test charts, plastic film and paper, absolutely flat (2.3µm variation over a 100mm length). The Elcometer 4900 – made of perforated aluminium, keeps a wider range of test pieces absolutely flat (2.3µm variation over a … Read More
The Elcometer 3505 Film Applicator, manufactured from hardened stainless steel, accurately apply either a single or up to five film stripes, each 12mm. Ideal for preparing samples for use with the Elcometer 5300 Linear Drying Time Recorder or for simultaneously comparing formulations. Each cube film applicator is supplied with a set of nineteen thickness gauges from 30 – 1000µm to adjust the film thickness.
These film applicators are precision engineered from hardened stainless steel to provide four film thicknesses in one gauge. Simply rotate the applicator to the required thickness, fill the reservoir with the test coating and draw down a uniform stripe.The Elcometer 3508 is supplied with two reservoirs, ideal for preparing samples for the Elcometer 1720 Abrasion and Washability Testers or for comparing two coatings simultaneously.
The Elcometer 3570 micrometric film applicator is made of anodised aluminium with a reservoir and a bevelled blade applicator body, and is suitable for high-precision manual application of high viscosity fluids onto relatively firm substrates.The gap can be adjusted, in 1 micron intervals, from 0 to 1mm by the inclination of the device, using a micrometric screw. The total width of the applicator can be calculated by adding 36mm to the film width of the applicator.
Elcometer 3580 Casting Knife Film Applicators The Elcometer 3580 Casting Knife Film Applicators is available in a wide range of film widths and has extended sides to confine the coating during the application and is an ideal gauge for the laboratory. The film thickness can be adjusted in 10 micron steps from 0 to 6mm by means of two integrated micrometric screws.Manufactured in anodised aluminium*, with a bevelled blade applicator body, the Elcometer 3580 is recommended for manually applying thick, … Read More
Elcometer 3545 Adjustable Bird Film Applicators – Manufactured to the same high standards as the Elcometer 3540 and 3550 Bird Film Applicators, Elcometer 3545 Adjustable Bird Film Applicators are user adjustable. By choosing different settings each end (using the gap size scale), a wedge shaped film can be applied.Available in a number of film widths, these high precision applicators can be used manually or with the Elcometer 4340 Motorised Film Applicators. The total width of the applicator can be calculated … Read More
These easy to clean gauges are manufactured to the highest accuracy.Precision ground stainless steel Bird Film Applicators have a flat edged prismatic body making them suitable for coatings applied to a flat and relatively strong substrate. The Elcometer 3550 Bird Film Applicator has 1 film thickness, whereas the Elcometer 3540 has 4 thicknesses per applicator. Both versions are available in a range of film widths and can be used with the Elcometer 4340 Motorised Film Applicators.
The Elcometer 3525 & 3530 Adjustable Baker Film Applicators are manufactured using the very latest machining techniques to ensure outstanding accuracy. These Baker Film Applicators allow the user to select the specific gap size required.The coating thickness gap size can be set to produce either a uniform film or a film wedge. Each film applicator has thickness markings down each side for fast set up. Available in two gap size ranges and a number of film widths, these stainless steel … Read More
Elcometer 3520 Baker Film Applicator – Specifications Made of hardened stainless steel with a cylindrical applicator body, these gauges apply a coating of specified thickness and film width on flat, relatively firm substrates.The Elcometer 3520 Baker Film Applicator can also be used with the Elcometer 4340 Motorised Film Applicators. Each Elcometer 3520 Baker Film Applicator has four high precision specified coating thickness sizes for accuracy and is available in a range of film widths.
Made of stainless steel and consisting of a cylindrical bar wound with stainless steel wire, the Elcometer 4360 4361Spiral Bar Coaters are used to apply a predetermined thickness for coatings with high leveling characteristics. A wide range of different wire diameters provides a range of measures for coating thicknesses from 4 to 500µm. 2 standard bar widths are available, 140mm or 250mm, allowing the user to apply the correct film width dependent on the substrate or test chart width.
